CAMBA After-School

PS 139 partners with CAMBA, a non-profit agency, for After-School. CAMBA’s After-School Programs are built upon a foundation of best practices in youth development and research-based curricula. We offer youth various structured activities, including supper and socialization, homework help, cultural and enrichment activities, arts, recreation, conflict resolution, clubs, creative arts, and athletics. The goal of our programs is to engage youth in learning activities that build upon, but are different from, school-day studies. A Mentor-Teacher from the school-day staff provides continuity between after-school and school-day learning. Student programming is also built on the principle of choice. We develop an array of clubs to allow students to choose those activities that best match their areas of interest. We also engage parents through family nights, club showcases, and referrals to other needed services.
